WAKE Up and Read is partnering with Ready4K, a text messaging program for families of preschoolers and kindergarteners, to support school readiness.
Ready4K was created by Stanford University researchers. The program sends three weekly cell phone texts to families to give them bite-sized tips and easy, specific actions related to developing early literacy skills. Each week families receive a “FACT” text, a “TIP” text; and a “GROWTH” text. The content of these texts includes a variety of literacy skills along with related parenting practices.
Families can self-enroll by text or enroll in Ready4K by going to the WAKE Up and Read website,www.wakeupandread.org and completing the Ready4K form.
